The start of filming for the upcoming TV series on the Brontës, Haworth, has gone back in time — all the way to the 1840s. Film crews have been busy building an exact replica of the Parsonage as it would have appeared when the Brontës lived there. After the death of Rev. Patrick Brontë later tenants changed the look of the Parsonage through renovations and remodeling. The Brontës, however, would still probably recognize their home even with the changes to the facade, but the plethora of trees that have since grown up surrounding the parsonage and graveyard might have been astounding to the family. For this reason, the replica is being built on the treeless moors. This slide show follows the progression of the 1840 Parsonage being built.
